But John Duff, head of the Los Angeles-based group called Narconon, said there is nothing controversial about Narconon.

"We're not a religion," said Duff, who in 1982 was commended by President Reagan for his work against drug abuse.

Duff admitted Friday in a telephone interview from the organization's headquarters in California that the founder of the Church of Scientology, L. Ron. Hubbard, "developed this rehabilitation approach we use."

"The Church of Scientology is a friend of Narconon - they support us," Duff said, including financial help "at times." Duff said he is a member of the church as are "some of the staff" of Narconon.
